lyrics

Jenny was a good woman
James was a gentleman
They pushed hard against the pushback
They loved liked porcelain

It was a work of art
That got stronger under fire
Got judged for being what it was
It was worth the fight

Don’t forget what you come from
Don’t forget what you come from

Jenny showed up at sixteen
James was born right down the street
To a name that told him
Who he should be

There were things you didn’t do
And people you didn’t talk to
But Jenny and James
They didn’t care who knew

Don’t forget what you come from
Don’t forget what you come from

Jenny kept a diary
James just kept it in
Everybody’s got their own way
Of dealing with where they’ve been

They left before you got here
But she left her words to read
And I’ll give you her name to remind you
Of who you can be

Don’t forget what you come from
Don’t forget what you come from
